[11.16] Season 11 Morgana Juñglê ^_^

By PulseBeat_02
Introduction and About Me
Hello everybody! I am PulseBeat_02, and I have been playing Morgana for a while now. Out of all mage junglers, Morgana is arguably one of best out of them all. She is very safe (her kit allows her to live), and also her buffs made her become a jungle pick.
Pros vs. Cons
Why is Morgana a good jungler? Well, if you take a look at her abilities and passive, it is pretty self explanatory. Morgana's passive, Soul Siphon allows her to heal for 20% of the damage that she deals to Champions, Large Monsters. This means that this allows her to be healthy while clearing camps and also making ganks onto lanes. Her W, Tormented Shadow is what makes her a great jungler. It allows for her to deal 50% more damage to monsters. Plus, the current cool-down of her Tormented Shadow is reduced by 5% every time Soul Siphon activates, which when stacked up, can greatly help her place more Tormented Shadow faster. In fact, you can use this to your advantage to clear both Raptors and a Red Buff leashless. Example Here by ShayukiLoL The reason why this works is because the cool-down is decreased so much from stacks gotten from both the Raptors and the Red Buff combined that it allows her to heal a ton and place multiple shadows.

However, you must note her weaknesses also. She has very large mana issues early game. Her abilities use a ton of mana, meaning that you must find a way to compensate for it. If you played Morgana before and you are experienced with her, you shouldn't need to worry about this because you already know how to conserve mana, but if you are new, you should consider starting with Blue Buff because it helps give you mana easier. In most matchups, you should always max Tormented Shadow because it helps clear jungle faster. Your ganks may suffer a bit because you aren't putting points into your Dark Binding, but in the long run it will pay off. If you want to go for early ganks though look at the other ability order, which puts 3 points into your Tormented Shadow and then puts 3 points into your Dark Binding. (And then goes back to maxing Tormented Shadow -> Dark Binding -> Black Shield). If you are contesting scuttle/objectives, make sure to keep your root and smite handy, because you will need it. Morgana is very poor in 1v1 fights early game (comparatively to other junglers).
Jungle Path
If you are new to Morgana, you should start Blue Buff . Otherwise I wouldn't see Red Buff as an issue to start. When jungling, always optimize your farm so you can kill as many camps as you can in one run. This should be your jungle path:

Starting Blue Buff:
Blue Buff -> Gromp -> Wolves -> Red Buff -> Raptors -> Rift Scuttler

Starting Red Buff
Red Buff -> Krugs -> Raptors -> Blue Buff -> Gromp (or Wolves ) -> Rift Scuttler

Krugs are generally one of the harder ones to clear, so keep your smite in handy just in case (because Morgana doesn't have as much sustain for smaller monsters). While clearing camps such as Wolves , Raptors , or Krugs , clear the biggest monster first and then clear the others. (Drop W on the whole camp, and keep auto-attacking the big monster. Try to get out of the attack range of the monsters to conserve health)
Gank Paths
You should be focusing on farm early game, because it is better in the long run. If the enemy is considerably behind, you could land a couple Dark Binding to make their life miserable and get your laner even more ahead -- however -- your ganks aren't as great until you hit level 6 power-spike. Generally what you should do is pick up a Control Ward or Oracle Lens and place it in a bush (to check for vision) and wait for them to push up. Then, you can either throw a Dark Binding from the bush or you can walk in, (throwing a binding from the bush is preferable because they can't see you). After throwing your Dark Binding, your allies should be able to CC them down. You can also use Soul Shackles then throw Dark Binding out, because your ultimate usually guarantees you to hit your binding (or you can throw it out after the stun). This will slow, root, and stun them (which is a ton of damage and also enough time for your laners to help you kill them). Keep in mind, however, never gank too much on Morgana. You are a scaling champ, and you will suffer late game if you forget to farm.
Item Builds
Your item builds will stay similar, with Hailblade and Liandry's Anguish/ Luden's Tempest being core, but it may change from time to time. Take a look at the example item builds I made above and the notes so you can see when to build them and why. As a review, Luden's Tempest is for if you are going against squishy enemies, and Liandry's Anguish is for if you are going against tanky teammates.
Why Predator?
For those who are new, it may seem like a trollpick to use Predator on Morgana, but it is considered one of the strongest runes to use on her. Many high elo players use Predator as a way to patch up the issue that Morgana mainly has which is mobility. This is similar to Darius where he needs Ghost because champions can kite him out too easily.

Let's take a look at some other Junglers like Rammus or Nunu & Willump. What makes them successful? Well for them it's mainly their speed and engages in their ganks (For Rammus it is the roll and Nunu & Willump it is the snowball). If Morgana has Predator, her ganks have far more potential because she is able to gank lane faster (meaning enemies will have less reaction time) and also get closer to the enemy and land a root or use ultimate if necessary. It is considered one of the strongest combinations you can go for Morgana.
Power Spikes
Around 10-15 minutes, you should be looking for ganks because you should already have level 6 by then and also have Hailblade upgrade and Sorcerer's Shoes. Your damage will be extremely high and should take out squishy champions with ease. Your main power spikes are:

Level 6: Your ganks will be much better compared to pre-6 and also your combo will be usually enough to secure a kill.

Level 11: The slow for Soul Shackles has increased up to 25%!. This is a huge change and will allow you to slow your enemies even further.

Liandry's Anguish or Luden's Tempest: You will have the ability to take out tanks/squishies easier, and gives you 1v1 potential.

Remember to help champions that are very weak in lane early game (such as Kayle, etc).
Tips in Solo Queue
Solo queue is a very toxic place (especially that you are playing alone). Because Morgana jungle was considered a "troll" pick from the League of Legends Community (even playing mid some people are toxic!), I suggest you do the following.

1) Don't select your champ when saying which champ you are going to choose (at the beginning of champion selection). I've known a lot of trolls who purposely ban your champion for them to avoid you from playing the role. Instead, lock in and pick Morgana when it is your turn to lock in. This way, your champion doesn't get banned in the ban phase from trolls.

2) If you are a hothead or don't like others being toxic to you, please do /muteall.
I'm being serious here. You aren't lacking any communication, you are instead going
to play worse if your teammates are flaming you or being toxic. Communicate to your
team by using pings only instead if you are going to do this.

3) Practice. Morgana Jungle is actually very hard to perfect because she can easily
be pounded down from other OP jungle champions in the meta. A good suggestion is to manage to get to the late game. Morgana doesn't shine bright early game, so ideally try to get as far as you can to late game so you can scale.

4) Even if you feed, you are still useful. You can act as utility support providing your team with roots, shields while keeping some sustain.

5) Good luck, and have fun. I find that some people take such a game too seriously, and there is no fun that is being brought out.
Hotfix and Updates
- [11] After the hotfix (which allowed her W to scale and deal more damage to Krugs), there was a 1% increase in the play rate of her jungle.
- [10.25] Her W was nerfed by 8 damage, causing her scaling to be also nerfed. This greatly affects jungle because she will no longer be to deal as much damage as before, causing her sustain to decrease as well.
High Level Play
Morgana Jungle is played by CLG Broxah. In fact, he uses it as a pick for many solo queue games and even done it before in official pro-play. He is a great jungler overall too.
Conclusion
